After a long cool spring, finally it's a beautiful day on Canada's West Coast - so appropriate for Canada Day.

I've enclosed some recent pics that I took in our Nation's Capital, Ottawa & our Provincial Capital, Victoria.

Similarly, Happy Birthday to all of our American friends on the upcoming 4th of July.

BTW, the famous 'BeaverTailS' pastries are the best thing about Ottawa, ha!!

Happy Birthday, Canada! But Tom, does this mean that you don't have a 4th of July in Canada?

Nope. The Canadian calendar goes from the third right to the fifth!

Happy Birthday, Canada! Nice photos Lab!

Shouldn't this be in the birthday thread?

I wonder, with Canada's and Americas birthday being so close together, if the U.N. combines them into one party and each get gyped out of presents?

145 years is the official number, but that only included Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Other provinces joined over the next 85-odd years.

The announcement was immediately published on the internet :
